Line Voltage Switch Inclusion For BCW Select Type Operations

Postby forumadmin » Thu May 31, 2012 4:56 pm

So you just wanted to run a few lighting circuits through BCW and the line voltage switches didn't get included, nor did you get any switch leg hots! What happened?

Well, when you use the 'Select' method of letting DraftLogic Electrical know which circuits you want BCW to act upon, it does grab all devices explicitly in the circuits regardless of how many or few members you select of those circuits but since line voltage switches do not identify the circuit they serve, they don’t get included.

The solution is pretty easy--just include the line voltage switches that are involved with any lighting circuits you are including in your 'Select' devices for a BCW run.

This tip ONLY applies to when you choose the 'Select' method of letting DraftLogic Electrical know which devices you want to run BCW on. All other selection methods grab all devices in an area rather than hunting specifically for devices of specific circuits...so the other selection methods include the line voltage switches in the selection set for execution.
